Deathbulge: Battle of the Bands releasing August 8

By - | Views: 12,069

Following the Kickstarter success in 2019, Deathbulge: Battle of the Bands finally has a released date and it's coming soon on August 8th. The Kickstarter pulled in 2,247 backers pledging $59,202 - so hopefully we're about to see another great game.

What is it: A role-playing game featuring musical themes with an affinity for the sick and righteous. The story revolves around a deadly battle of the bands contest, where entrants can attack and be attacked with music. Based on the Deathbulge comic from Dan Martin.

Check out the new trailer:

  • Customise the band with 9 musically-themed classes to choose from, each with their own attacks, perks and sensational appearance.
  • Kick down every single door you come across, regardless of how unlocked they might be.
  • Some doors will be too strong to kick down. That's why you gotta kick down weaker doors to level up your door kicking skill until you're strong enough.
  • Fancy combat system that focuses on BAR EFFECTS. What happens BETWEEN turns makes all the difference, bringing real-time elements into the turn-based combat.
  • Sew patches of band logos onto your BATTLE JACKET for extra perks in BATTLE.
  • No Random Encounters! Monsters will be shown on the field for your avoiding leisure.
  • Original soundtrack that'll make you say things like SIIICK and OH RIGHT ON.
  • Bursting at the seams with humour, absurdity and a wide variety of colourful characters, armed with an abundance of dialogue faces to express themselves TO THE MAX.
  • A rich world packed with well over 100 unique NPCs.
  • Even the ITEMS have personality. Say bye bye to the generic "HEALTH POTION". Local NPC Barry Friendly is taking care of the soothing beverages around here. Sink into a warm cup of BARRY FRIENDLY'S TEA whenever your health is low. Maybe you'll even have the pleasure of meeting Barry at some point.
  • One of the enemies you fight is a skateboarding platypus.

Follow it on Steam.
